A pair of robins has built a nest on top of the light by my balcony door. She has been sitting on three eggs for at least a week, though I don’t know exactly when she laid them. Today I heard little clattering sounds under the nest and I thought perhaps eggs were hatching and chips were flying. But it appears that little pinkish beans, resembling faded aduki beans, are falling from the nest. So far at least 20 or so. What is going on? I’m soaking a few to see if they sprout into something.
